Blum Tool Company is dedicated to producing tools
that make woodworking easier and more enjoyable for both amateurs
and professionals alike.
The company was started in 2006 as an outgrowth
of my furniture and cabinet business called Blum's Furniture Shop.
I have been a full-time cabinetmaker for 24 years, and was a dedicated
hobbyist before that.
My passion has always been tools, especially planes.
Blum Tool Co. was started because of my experiences using and
collecting antique tools, and my work experiences using tools
and thinking of ways to improve them. Ease of use, practicality,
and ease of sharpening are the design criteria that go into every
tool we make.
The shop is located in Walnut, Iowa, which is
located right off Interstate 80 in Western Iowa. Walnut is known
as Iowa's Antique City , and is a postcard Iowa small town. All
the tools we make are on display in our front room ( as are many
antique tools ), so we invite you to stop by if you are travelling
Thank you for visiting the website.
